Congratulations to Karen for being voted the winner and thanks to Santa’s little helpers for turning the maquette into a ‘full size’ (?) model.
AMA is delighted to announce that Artisan’s New Waverley development has been awarded the National Regeneration Award in the 2017 RICS Awards.
CEO Allan Murray said:
“We are delighted to now see the fulfilment of the first phase of the masterplan for the area, which we initiated over a decade ago.This development has galvanised the revitalisation of a sadly neglected but very central part of the Old Town, within a World Heritage Site setting. The mixed use project interweave...s high quality new build with the refurbishment of historic buildings and creates a bold new urban public realm for the benefit of the local community.
View more details about the scheme on our web site: http://www.ama-ltd.co.uk/new-waverley.html and Artisan’s response to the good news: https://www.linkedin.com/…/artisan-real-estate-investors-n…/
The UK Government has announced it will take approximately 190,000 sq. ft. of Grade A office space designed by Allan Murray Architects at New Waverley.
This is part of Artisan's £200 million, 7.5 acre, mixed-use scheme and will move some 2900 civil service jobs into the heart of Edinburgh's Old Town including HMRC, which will run one of their 13 regional centres from New Waverley.
During the last two years, New Waverley has delivered 400 hotel rooms, including two Whitbread... hotels – a Premier Inn and a Hub by Premier Inn - and an Adagio Aparthotel overlooking the Royal Mile.

A few recent photos of the new pend off the Canongate in Edinburgh as part of our Adagio aparthotel building. The arch has a complex geometry as it widens out to the rear to allow views up to Nelson's Monument on Calton Hill.
